In this workshop, you will:
Gain a foundational knowledge of The Golden Circle.
We break down Simon Sinek's concept to create an understanding of every level and how they work together to make up your unique Golden Circle. You will learn what makes a simple, inspiring Why Statement and truly actionable HOWs.
Work with peers to discover and articulate your WHY.
Through storytelling in small groups to help each other explore the origin of your WHY, every participant will leave with a first draft of their own personal Why Statement. You will walk out with ideas, tools and practices to amplify your WHY.
Communicate your ideas in a way that inspires.
Every one of has the capacity to inspire others. The way we do it is by thinking, acting and communicating from your WHY. You will learn communication and storytelling skills that can be applied to spark meaningful change in all situations — from one-on-one conversations to team meetings and keynote presentations.
Create content that pulls people in.
There is a difference between a charismatic and an inspiring communicator. The charismatic leave us thinking how amazing they are. The inspiring leave us feeling how powerful we are. We will teach you how to approach and structure your content in a way that will deeply connect and move those around you.

There will be a morning & afternoon break.

In order to inspire others, you must know what inspires you. The first day of this workshop helps each participant articulate their Why Statement and pinpoint the life experiences that shaped who they are. Those “lessons learned” become the foundation we each stand on to live in greater alignment with our personal values. Leaders who know what they stand for are more focused, passionate and inspiring to others.
The second day of this workshop is about learning how to share all kinds of ideas, from the extraordinary to the mundane, in a way that is meaningful and effective. If we want others to support and champion our ideas, we must enroll them by communicating in a way that is simple, clear and inspiring.

Who is this workshop for?
Leadership is not a rank or a position. Leadership is a choice. It is the choice to look after the person to the left of us and the person to the right of us. This workshop is designed for anyone who wishes to take care of those in their charge.
Will Simon Sinek or Jen Waldman attend the workshop?
Speak Like A Leader was co-developed by Simon Sinek and Jen Waldman (Broadway Acting Coach). Simon is our WHY guy and this workshop is all about HOW TO bring your WHY to life. This is the reason one of our hand-picked Igniters will be facilitating this experience. Simon will not be in attendance. Jen is currently scheduled to facilitate Day 2 but her attendance is not guaranteed.

Anything I should know if I choose to make social/work plans on the evening of Day 1?
This is an immersive experience. To gain the most from this workshop, we ask that you engage fully during each day. Many participants have found it valuable to take time to rest and reflect on the work they’ve completed that day. There is also an opportunity to socialize and build deeper relationship with your fellow participants. You are, of course, free to do as you choose. However, we do recommend you keep your schedule completely committed to these two days.
